Geocaching Event

Iron Hill has several caches hidden around the park.

Doggie park

One of the main features of the renewed park is a "bark park" where people can exercise their pooches without having them on a leash.

Park Dedication

Over the winter of 2007/8 the county renewed the park after it had descended into seediness. That spring they rededicated the park, and the Friends have been active supporters of the park ever since.

New Entrance

In 2011 the county built a new, more public entrance to the park on Old Baltimore Pike.
